the unlikelihood

Be it a tiger or a lion

it is unlikely that I join

whether you send request

or you toss a coin

the necessity for compromise

who is satisfied with the compromise

neither you nor I

but when the water went above the head

it was time to say goodbye

at least the rot didn’t get exposed

at least the secrets were not disclosed

at least the peace of mind remained

at least the artificial rapport was maintained

life is a basket of compromises

and this wisdom gets developed with maturity

compromises are better than the conflicts

at least the character doesn’t get stripped

the string of belief

though we are miles away from each other

our hearts are too close to even bother

our cultures do not match by any means

but the art of living sparkles all our dreams

we do not even have the same mother tongue

but we converse through our hearts so young

surprisingly our gender is also not the same

but never could extinguish the burning flame

though our religious preferences are also unlike

but the religion of humanity had made us alike

yes, we are different and we are born to deviate

perhaps colour and the creed may also not relate

but this huge pile of differences is just meaningless

as the powerful string of belief is what that binds us

the mirror image

downcast, distressed, enervated disgrace

bloated eyes, desiccated, grotesque face

the sleepless nights, the nightly days

the notebook sketches, freaky ways

scatterbrained, meaningless walk

incongruous laughter, bemused talk

mystical creature, embodied human

bent to the earth, smattering confidence

wonder, am I seeing mirror erroneously

or is it an erratic benign coincidence
